Back to work

It is so nice to be back in the studio working. I have been sick and unable to work for the last two weeks. So back to work finally. The above image is a pair of earrings that I am working on. The bottom image is this great new chair that Steve got for me from a friend. It is perfect. And the seat open up for added storage! Wonderful. More updates soon.

Bangles!! I love them. I wear these ones everyday. I have worn bangles everyday for the last ten years. These ones are ones that I made using all of my hammers. So much fun. This is also a sample of the ones that we will be making in the workshop that I will be teaching at Snow Farm in the spring.

Moon Earrings 2

These are the second moon earrings that I have made. The photo does no justice to them at all. The top silver circle is oxidized to bring out the texture, which I think looks like moon craters. Then there is the middle bead of labadorite and the bottom in hammer quartz. These are great earring that are not too long, really they are the perfect length. They are light to wear and the blue/grey color of the labadorite are great with any outfit.

They are also teaching classes there now. Stop by and check them out. Thank you Randi, I look forward to working with you.

Pebbles and puddles Earrings

Here are the finished pebbles and puddles earrings. I am shipping these off in the morning. These earrings came out amazing. They have a fabulous high polish and really the perfect pair, not only are perfect with your little black dress but they will look great with a pair of jeans. They have such a high polish you can see me taking the photo in them. So funny. It took me three tries to get these perfect. Now have all these pebbles and puddles pieces that do not match. Maybe they will become a bracelet or necklaces.

Pebbles and Puddles Ring

This is a fabulous ring. It is from my pebbles and puddles line. It is super light and comfortable, not only does it have the great texture and interest from the "pebbles" but the "puddle" is a high polish and almost mirror like. This is a great statement ring for the everyday. One should have something like this in their collection.

Baby Rattle

This is a beautiful sterling silver baby rattle. My good friend Judy Neugebauer made for Quinn when he was born. It has a fresh water pearl on the end and this swirl design on the rattle part. I had just found the other day as we have been unpacking more boxes. I gave it a quick polish and wanted to share it with everyone. Thank you again Judy.

My studio

I had to share these photo's of my studio. The way the sun lights up the back, the trees with the vibrant yellow leafs. It looked so inviting that I had to share with all of you. And today is an abnormally warm day for November mid sixty's, and we already had one snow storm. Such crazy weather. I hope that you are enjoying the beautiful fall day.

A slow week

It has been a slow week. I have been in the studio and working on the computer this week. Fall has been beautiful, it is one of my favorite seasons. The colours and the raining down of leafs, and the shadow that they create through the sun. And then there is when the leafs dance across a parking lot in what looks like a little tornado. But atlas it coming to an end. Here is Massachusetts we had our first taste of winter last night and this morning. Snow falling and cars covered in ice this morning.

Black and white letters

This is a fabulous new necklace. The stone is black and white(not easily seen in photos) it is bezel set and the bottom piece is a hollow form. It has a beautiful texture created using my vintage stamps. I have oxidized it to bring it out. It hangs from a 16 inch snake chain. It sits on the most perfect spot on the neckline.

Working away

Here I am working away. Steve took these great shots of me. I love the top one. I think that everyone should work right by  window. This is were I am most at home, most calm and most stress free. Ahh the studio.

Quartz earrings

I love these earrings. They have hand made ear hooks that are squared. The top piece is sterling silver that has been roller printed on both sides, and then oxidized to bring out the texture. And the stone is a hand hammered quartz. I think that these are spectacular earrings. They remind me of the moon. They are simple and elegant. They will go with whatever event you go to or outfit you wear. These are a must have. And also a great gift to give, anyone would love these, you can do no wrong with these. I know having to think about the holidays before Halloween, it is mind numbing. Email if you are interested at

The show

The top photo is my friend Lisa who was a great help to me last night. Thank you so much Lisa, you were amazing. And the bottom photo is me behind my display.
It was held in factory that makes wire fencing very interesting and it made for a great back drop. The factory was in one of the many old mill/factory buildings that are all over the area. I love them I think that they are beautiful.
It was a good turn out for bad weather. Thank you all for stopping by it was a great night.

Setting up

Here we are setting up. Steve and Quinn where a great help for carrying in all of the boxes and tubs. Quinn was a great help setting up the display. Inside the venue was all of these great old cars and trucks that Quinn loved. Setting up went smoothly.

Pearl Necklace

I love this necklace. It is made out three pieces if recycled sculptural silver and beautiful black or peacock fresh water pearls. It is a fantastic piece, it is amazing on. It is one of those necklace that get you noticed. It is very classic and contemporary all at the same time. A piece that should be in everyone's collection.

It has a toggle clasp and it sits perfectly on the neck and is very comfortable to wear. I love it, it came out amazing. See it in person on Friday at the Heritage Starlight Celebration (riverdale mill).

Quinn at his bench

Here is Quinn painting at his bench. He loves that he has his own bench in my studio. When we were working on it he kept asking for one. Now he can "work" with me. He seems right at home in the studio. He comes in and turns on his light and gets right to work. So very cute.

Here is a bracelet that I have been working on that is now finished. It is set with green tourmaline and a dark amethyst. It is really comfortable and sits amazingly on the wrist.

Floor of my New Studio

Here is Steve painting the floor of my new studio. He is using a high heat paint. In the far room is were the wood stove is going. And we decided that we would paint the whole floor with it so it would look really good and also it will finding anything that I drop a lot easier. And if I should drop a hot piece of metal the floor will be ok. It looks amazing. Steve did so much work in here for me. We should be moving in through out the week. So exciting. Thank you Steve!!

Raw Rose Quartz

Our friend Jeff Ellis was in PA visiting family, when in his Uncles basement they tripped over this forgotten rose quartz. It is huge. It has some of the most intense colors of pink I have ever seen in a rose quartz. Thank you  Jeff and your Uncle. I believe that Jeff said that is uncle had this sitting in his basement for 30 years just waiting. Amazing. I can not wait to find a lapidary artist to cut and polish this into stones for me. So if anyone knows of anyone please email me.
